Office of Safety, Oversight and Quality

To address COVID-19, long-term care facilities must work with Safety, Oversight and Quality (SOQ) as well as with Oregon Health Authority (OHA)​ and Local Public Health Authorities (LPHAs)

At the Federal level, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) provide guidance for long-term care facilities.
